Background: Font color:
Lily and James were heading back towards the Common Room together when they saw Professor Dumbledore. He looked a little flustered, but all the more cheerful.
“As it is Christmas, I am allowing the Head Boy and Girl to take a break. You guys did a fabulous job of putting the dance together. So, no patrolling tonight!” Dumbledore said. He walked off chuckling to himself.
“Did you slip him some Fire whiskey too?” James whispered. Lily laughed. She realized how much James made her laugh.
No Lily, don’t think about it. It only makes you sad. You made a mistake and now you have to live with it, she thought.
“So, that clears my whole schedule,” Lily said. “The Common Room is not gonna be a pleasant place. Sirius is going to be drunkenly singing to anyone who will stand still long enough.”
“We could go to the Heads Room and hang out?” James said.
“Ok. But I’m starved. And I am in the mood to be rebellious,” Lily said, grinning to herself.
“Not a problem. I have connections with the House Elves,” James said.
“Meet you back in the Heads Room in ten minutes,” he called off. She smiled. She was better with James when they were friends. No stress, no fighting. Just hanging out.
Lily found the picture of the small, house elf and said, “Nimbus.”
She entered her old room and found that some of her belongings had already been replaced in there. She opened her closet to find a pair of track bottoms and a tank top. Just what she was looking for.
She changed and went out to the Common Room to find that James was already there, and changed already too.
“How did you change so fast?” Lily asked in bewilderment.
“I do everything fast. No, I just have skill,” James said.
“So what’d ya bring me?” Lily asked, sitting down on the couch next to James.
“Let’s see, I brought some Peppermint Icicle Cake, some Butterbeer, some Chocolate Frogs, and last but not least, Fire whiskey!” he said.
“How did you get this cake?” she asked, cutting herself a slice. “I made sure only Dumbledore got some. It's his favorite.”
“Well you see, our dear old Professor was wandering down the hall as we saw. And I assumed he was drunk and I think I assumed correct. So, I just told him that the starving children at Durmstrang needed the cake and he said, ‘Well, that doesn’t surprise me.’ So, I got this,” James explained.
“You Marauders and your tricks. Pass over the Butterbeer please,” she asked politely.
“Can’t handle the real alcohol Evans? Fire whiskey too strong for ya?” James taunted.
“Fine, have it your way,” she said. She grabbed one of the many bottles James had brought. She took a gulp from it and wiped her mouth with fury.
“That all you got Evans?” he asked. “Watch and learn. See how a real man drinks,” James said. He grabbed the bottle and downed about half of it.
“Oh, impressive. Pass me over another bottle Potter. It’s on,” Lily said. James nodded his head and picked up a bottle too.
“Cheers,” they said.
About Two hours later..
“Where are we going Jim?” Lily asked. The two of them were stumbling down the hall and no one was out. Lily was giggling profusely and James was shushing her and laughing at the same time.
“Did you just call me Jim, Lils?” he asked her.
“Did I? Oops,” she said laughing. This time they both laughed and luckily they were near the Gryffindor Tower.
“Hey guys! Where’ve you been?” Sirius asked, opening the Portrait Hole before they could reach it.
“Party’s in here. Oh, you got more Fire whiskey. Good. I like that stuff,” Sirius slurred.
“You don’t need anymore Padfoot,” James said, taking a large gulp himself. He belched rather loudly and Lily and Sirius started laughing.
“Neither do you. Now give me some,” Sirius said, stumbling down to the ground as he exited the Portrait Hole.
“Share the love,” Lily said, reaching for the bottle. James held it above his head and laughed.
“Not fair! You’re taller than me,” Lily said. James laughed. Sirius was starting to bark at the drink.
“Siri, what’re you doing? You look like a dog,” Lily said.
“Well, duh, I am a dog. WOOF WOOF,” he said, getting on all fours.
“What’re you guys doing?” Remus said, as he came out with Katy. They looked tired and upset, as if they had been woken up.
“Nothing Moony. How’s the party? Can we come in? PAR-TAY! Yeah!” James yelled.
“What are you guys talking about? There’s no party in there. Everyone’s asleep,” Katy said, holding Lily up.
“They’re all drunk,” Remus said.
“ARE NOT!” the three screamed following more laughter.
“I’ll take Padfoot in, do you think you can help Lily and James into the Heads Rooms?” Remus asked, turning to Katy. She nodded.
“We don’t need help,” James said.
“We can get there,” Lily said, trying to walk but falling down when she tried. James tried to pick her up but fell on her in the process. They laughed rather loudly again.
“Shut up you guys! You’re the Head Boy and Girl! And you’re drunk. You’re so lucky McGonagall is going to have the Hangover of the Year tomorrow or I bet she’d take away your badges," Katy said furiously.
“HAHA, you can’t catch us,” Lily and James yelled, running off into the darkness of the corridors.
“Screw this,” Katy said.
Katy headed back into the Common Room and let Lily and James wander off to wherever they’d end up.

“Hey James, I still like you, you know. I was scared when we broke up,” Lily said, grabbing more Fire whiskey. She started laughing and so did James.
“Oh my god Lily, I still like you too! How weird? And I don’t even like Fawn Daniels,” James said, with tears of laughter in his eyes.
“Stop before I pee myself,” Lily cried. They were laughing hysterically at their feelings and anyone who saw them would have been very confused.
The two of them had managed to find their way back to the Heads Room by themselves but had spent a good ten minutes harassing the House Elf picture, causing more laughter.
“Are you scared?” Lily asked in a whisper. James stopped laughing.
“Yeah I am,” he said, leaning closer to her. They were on the couch and they could feel each other’s drunken breathe on their faces.
James leaned in and started kissing Lily passionately. Lily didn’t hold back. She kissed more and more and then she sort of blacked out. James as well.

Lily awoke to the feeling of a splitting head ache. She didn’t want to open her eyes because she knew when she did the vomit would fill her mouth. She didn’t remember a thing from the night before, except that she and Potter had gone back to the Common Room.
Maybe nothing happened. I did end up in my bed last night, Lily thought.
But just as she was thinking this she felt an arm roll onto her. She opened her eyes and looked around. She was in James’s bedroom lying next to the one and only James Potter, who was still asleep. She could see lipstick on his face. He was wearing no shirt and she didn’t dare venture under the covers to see if that was the only item of clothing missing.
She sat up and felt a chill of cold touch her body. She was about to get up when she realized that she too, was naked.
She let out a blood-curdling scream, resulting in James’s awakening.
“What, what happened? What was that?” James said as he sat up right away. He looked over and saw Lily.
“What happened last night?” he asked her.
“I don’t remember,” she said bemused.
“Damn. I hope nothing happened,” James cursed.
“Gee thanks Potter. Feeling’s mutual,” Lily said.
I always hoped my first time with Lily would be special. Not a drunken one night stand, James thought.
Lily made a face as she grabbed the comforter off his bed and dragged it into his room.
How am I going to explain this to Katy???, she thought.
A/N: Purely out of boredom, hope you sort of enjoyed it. Definitely not my best, but hey, you got some Lily/James action. Let me just tell you that you shouln't jump to conclusions. There is an explanation for it all. So please, read and review!!
